Conventional X-Ray radiography is the oldest and most widely utilized form of diagnostic imaging. An X-Ray is a noninvasive medical test that helps physicians diagnose and treat medical conditions. Imaging with x-rays involves exposing a part of the body to a small dose of ionizing radiation to produce pictures of the inside of the body.
Our radiologists can use a variety of ways to produce an image, each tailored to provide the best view of the organ or structure of interest.
X-ray imaging is the fastest and easiest way for a physician to view and assess broken bones, joint or spine injuries. We accept walk in X-Ray at all three of our locations and have very competitive self-pay prices.
X-rays play a key role in guiding orthopedic surgery and in the treatment of sports-related injuries. X-ray may uncover more advanced forms of cancer in bones although early screening for cancer findings requires other methods.
There is no special preparation required for most bone radiographs. You may be asked to change into a gown before your examination. You will also be asked to remove jewelry, eyeglasses and any metal objects that could show up on the images and overlap important findings. Women should always inform their doctor or x-ray technologist if there is any possibility that they are pregnant.
